Well, I Am 0-8 In Watching Cancelled TV Shows

Some people are crying that about 8 TV shows are going belly up and have been cancelled.
They should probably get Tchaikovsky to compose the theme song for this TV season because so many shows will be making their swan songs in the next few months.
On Tuesday, Timothy Olyphant will set his Stetson for his last roundup as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens on FX's Justified.
Later this month, we'll bid the Bravermans goodbye as Parenthood finishes up its run after six touch-and-go seasons.
In February, it will be lights out for The Mentalist and Two and a Half Men on CBS. NBC will also be shuttering Pawnee, Ind., next month as the plucky Parks and Recreation draws to a close.
Glee, saddled with the indignity of exile to TV's Friday-night ghetto in its last season, bites the dust in March. Cougar Town bows out on April Fool's Day.
And we've already been served the last suppers of Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, and The Newsroom this season.
Perhaps the toughest loss will be the supernal Mad Men, which resumes its bifurcated seventh season on April 5 and ends after seven episodes on May 17.
The remarkable facet of this mass series die-off is that we have so much advance warning. It didn't used to be this way. In the old days, you'd find out your show had been canceled because your parking privileges at the studio had been revoked. "Sorry, Mr. Van Dyke, your name's not on the list."
The only prime time, major channel TV shows I watch is COPS, Chicago Fire, Big Bang Theory, Family Guy and The Simpsons.
Everything else is junk to me.
